It´s September 2018 and I'm heading up north to spend a few days in the area of Abisko national park and Riksgränsen. On the way up north i’ll stop half way and pick up a friend of mine that will join me on the trip. He grow up near that area we are going and have great knowledge of hiking and the outdoors.
Our plan. To hike up to Rissajaure lake, also known as "trollsjön", and spend the night while photographing the area. From where I live its roughly an 835 miles (1350 km) drive so I'm spending the night at my friend's house roughly halfway there. In true fashion, I have big plans for my trip. Hoping for amazing light and fall color. I have been waiting for this so long and finally, I'm on my way. The easiest way to go there for most people can be to fly either to Kiruna or to the Norwegian city of Narvik just west of the Swedish boarder. But I did grow up in the northern part of Sweden so I have no problem with putting some miles behind the wheel. It's kinda natural for me and somewhat enjoyable.Read More
